COOL STORY TIEM!!

So for my 10th birthday my mom let my friends and I make a campfire in our sandpit.

This is about 6 acres of sand, nothing flammable, my mom was the secretary to the Fire Chief. The only reason this was allowed was to celebrate that fact that all four of us had recently received our "fire safety" Girl Scout badges. We had a bucket of water, a fire circle and adult supervision.

My neighbors called the police anyway, and the big dumb cop showed up all blustering and angry- because of the serious threat the four little girls were to his manhood or something- and took his gun out and put it on the hood of his car.

After my mom showed him her permit he drove off. With his gun and badge still on the top of his car.
When we found it, we were smart enough to leave it where it was and get my mom, because even though we were 10 year old children, we were smart enough to understand that fire arms are dangerous.

My mom tore an absolute strip off that cop.

mbillips: Serious Black: dittybopper: inadvertently carry

Much like the "accidental discharge" that I am positive only exists in the realm of unicorns and leprechauns, I don't think inadvertent carrying of a gun exists. We are talking about a tool whose sole purpose is to annihilate anything and everything that the business end is pointed towards. I believe a responsible gun owner should know where their potentially deadly firearms are at all times. If that's too much for you to handle, you shouldn't own a gun.

I can see you've never carried a gun. I had to wear an M9 around for a year when I was in Iraq (a more useless paperweight was never inflicted on anyone; I worked in an office in the Green Zone, so if the hajjis got inside the wire to the point where I had to shoot at them, I was dead, pistol or no). Within a month, you forget you have the thing on. I left mine lying around (unloaded, because the military isn't as stupid as most Armed Citizens) more than once when I took it off to work out.


That's funny, because the only dudes who ever lost track of their weapons in my unit were the biggest fark-ups and retards.

factoryconnection: dittybopper: To *ME*, responsible gun ownership is basically following the four rules of safe gun use, and making sure that unauthorized people like criminals don't get access, and that children only have well-supervised age-appropriate access, that sort of thing. That's responsible gun ownership.

Is one of those "constantly forget where you've stashed your weapons?"  That seems pretty common-sense to me.

Generally, that's what happens, not the one in the pocket, the one in the bag you use for other things besides airline flights.

I make sure there's no "too big bottle of contact lens solution" in that bag before I go to the airport, because I'm aware enough to know THAT I AM GOING TO THE AIRPORT

Trivia Jockey: Rev.K: Nothing to see here folks, just more Responsible Gun OwnershipTM

Because nothing says Responsible Gun OwnershipTM  quite like passing laws to protect negligent gun-owners.


Nothing in this thread could be said better than this.


How about ZERO TOLERANCE = ZERO INTELLIGENCE.

The current policy is largely "zero tolerance", with the rare and sane exception being news:

http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2014-01-29/news/os-sanford-airpo rt -holds-passenger-gun-20140129_1_orlando-international-airport-conceale d-weapon-permit-holders-armed-passenger

Why not just make a "gun check" part of the process?  If you have a gun, and are legally permitted to carry it, why not just provide people who inadvertently carry into an airport security zone a way to store their guns on the premises until they return?

That would accomplish the goal of a "gun free zone" in the passenger terminals and by extension on the aircraft, so what harm would be done?

Really, other than making carrying a gun as legally dicey as you possibly can in as many situations as you possibly can in order to make people shy away from it, what possible opposition can you have to something like that?
